"I think my gut tells me we're on the right track," says Detective Kim McGath. She has worked on the murder case of Cliff and Christine Walker and their two young children since 2007. They were gunned down in their Osprey home on December 19, 1959.
McGath says, "They were devoted to each other, to their children ... a lovely family. To see the crime scene pictures .. what happened .. heart breaking."
McGath believes Richard Hickock and Perry Smith are responsible.
